This is an outstanding book -- thoughtful, well-researched, well-written, and well-narrated. Rosen's thesis is both intriguing and argued compellingly. He offers valuable insights about the court that apply to other dimensions of our public, political life.
I couldn't even finish this; it was that bad. Narrator doesn't help, but didn't find any humor nor any characters worth investing in.
A predictable plot, cardboard characters, and a narrator who makes the story sag and drag. Her voice changes for male characters make them sound brainless.
An exceptional book with well-drawn characters who drive the novel. The interfaith marriage, the anti-Semitism in the small Michigan city, the conflicts between Saul and his mother and brother make this an engaging and insightful literary novel. The aimless/pointless suicide and the growth of the "Himmel" cult show a perceptive understanding of youth culture. Well worth reading, or listening to.
